UberEATS is bringing Miami Art Week to your door with limited edition cups designed by emerging local artist Lua Luisa Schwartz. Get yours when you open the UberEATS app from Thursday, December 1 until Saturday, December 3 and order from any of the partner restaurants for this activity: Harry’s Pizzeria®, Bodega, DIRT, Moshi Moshi and Novecento. Visit its Art Week HQ here for their fair map and pick up location guide.
If the last name sounds familiar, it should. Ms. Schwartz is the daughter of Michael and Tamara and when UberEATS reached out with a request for Harry’s to hook up with a homegrown artist, she jumped on it with a playful pattern that dances Miami on a cup.
“I wanted to use fruits, and these specific ones, because I feel it is a big part of the daily life and culture in Miami,” she explains. “Local fruits with bright colors and lively character remind us of our tropical roots.”
This Miami Beach native (16,) is a third year visual arts student at New World School of the Arts. She has always wanted to create art and was encouraged by her parents from a young age to embrace it. Inspired by her environment, Ms. Schwartz says of her work “There are certain ideas that I have associated with symbols, and since my artwork is often a thread of a concept I am interested in at the time, they are recurring.” Motifs materializing across media rather than focusing on one in particular give her work a transformative, fluid quality free from boundaries. As she has developed her style, Ms. Schwartz has shifted importance from aesthetically-pleasing, to conceptually stimulating.
Quantities are limited to the first 100 orders per day. So get on it! And visit Lulu’s website for her current portfolio of work. Her guide to Art Week? It’s to the point — see the important stuff and don’t try to do to it all. “I usually go to the big ones, Art Basel obviously. Scope, Context… and also Untitled also has some cool stuff.”
